Abstract pendant made from a disc of copper with 3 lengths of sterling silver wire fused to it's surface vertically. The wire extends beyond the bottom edge of the circle as if melting and dripping. As the silver fuses to the copper it spreads forming a random layer of silver on the surface.
The disc is slightly dished using a doming block but the silver wire prevents a proper dome shape, giving an interesting curved shape.
Abstract in design, these pieces are partly designed by the process of making them, I have an idea in mind but the nature of the process is such that random effects are inevitable.
When heated the copper takes on all sorts of lovely colours, purples and blues among others.
By its very nature this is a one off piece that could never be repeated exactly, for example there were 4 lengths of wire, one has virtually disappeared into the surface.
the pendant measures 3.5 cms x 3cms
Suitable for women and men the pendant is hung from a very narrow length of green leather thonging with a round, rather than flat, profile.
The thonging is fastened with two sliding knots so the length is adjustable from 60 cms to 30 cms.
I discovered that I could fuse silver to copper and brass simply by heating it sufficiently. I really enjoy the unpredictable nature of this work, whatever I plan is changed by the materials and how they react on the day.
